As you’ve no doubt heard, Wayne Rooney scored his 200th Premier League goal in Everton’s 1-1 draw against Man City at the Etihad on Monday night.
The 31-year-old latched on to a cross from Dominic Calvert-Lewin to steer the ball through Ederson’s legs and in off the post before wheeling away in celebration…
With that, Rooney joins Alan Shearer as the only two members of the Premier’s League ‘200 Club’, though he still has a further 60 goals to go before he usurps his fellow associate.
By sheer quirk of fortune, Rooney has scored his 50th, 150th and 200th Premier League goals against Man City.
This fact wasn’t lost on Rooney, who decided to rub it in a little bit in the wake of last night’s milestone…
Always nice to see a few familiar faces 😂👋🏼 pic.twitter.com/pr15fYfG7q

In fact, several eagle-eyed viewers even ascertained that Rooney’s tweet was more literal than perhaps he knew, with the Everton veteran celebrating in front of a smattering of the exact same City fans he irked at the Etihad four years previous…
Still angrily flicking those V’s, all these years later.
Impressive commitment to a most northern of pastimes.
